We chose The Oyster Point Hotel for our daughter's wedding because of it's excellent reputation, as well as it's beautiful water views. This venue also provided our guests with the convenience of an overnight stay after the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, all at one location. The wedding weekend, from start to finish, was everything we'd hoped for. Bill Murray, Banquet Manager, and Cristian Soto, Maitre'd, and the wonderful staff worked with us from the early planning stages to the end to make sure our event was perfect! Our guests couldn't say enough about the fantastic cocktail hour, and the entrees, and also the comfy bed pillows in each guest's room! We are so happy we chose The Oyster Point!
My husband and I got married at the Oyster Point 3 weeks ago, and we honestly could not be anymore pleased with our experience with the Oyster Point as our reception site.
Allison was our catering/event planner and Christian was our Maitre D, and they both were fantastic throughout the process. Whenever I e-mailed Allison with questions, she would get back to me right away and was always extremely helpful. Christian was unbelievable the day of the wedding. From the minute we got to the Oyster Point after our ceremony to the end of the reception, he kept us on track and made sure that everything flowed seamlessly. All of the tables, favors, and decorations were set up exactly how we wanted them.
Also, over the last three weeks countless wedding guests have reached out to us to tell us how GREAT the food was. The cocktail hour was unbelievable, and the dinner was even better. Guests loved the surf 'n' turf, it was great.
Thanks again Oyster Point for an unforgettable wedding experience!
I grew up in the Red Bank area, and we drove by The Oyster Point very often. Ever since I was young, I always told my mom, "I want to get married here!". Years later, the day finally came, and our first stop for a venue selection was The Oyster Point. It was also our last stop. The hotel is inviting with a lot of great detail - spiral staircase and glass-walled elevator in the lobby, to name a couple. On the second floor, (which you have the run of during the cocktail hour and reception) the floor to ceiling windows with a view of the Navesink River took our breath away. It was like you were on a cruise ship. We worked closely with Allison and Cristian, who were both a joy to work with, and they made our day run perfectly. All of our guests told us, "This was the best wedding we've ever been to!". The best part was at the end of the night, we just went right upstairs to our room! Excellent service, delicious food, and beautiful surroundings. What more could you ask for on your wedding day?
My husband and I got married there at the end of August and it was amazing!!! The food, the atmosphere, the views... It was clean and everyone was friendly. It was perfect! We booked in February and had the best experience from start to finish! Allison, our wedding planner was so helpful and thoughtful and kind! (We could not have done this without her! Thank you Allison!!) Our maitre'd Christian was amazing as well.. He knew his stuff! When we met with him we knew we were in good hands, he was organized and helpful. On the day of, He kept our bridal party in check- as well as us!! :) If I could do it all over, I would still choose oyster point again and again!!!! Thank you to the entire staff! We definitely recommend this place for any event you have! Or even just to get away a few nights. It is beautiful! The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. All of our guests had nothing but nice things to say about their stay and about our wedding! We had our ceremony here as well & it was set up beautifully and organized well.
The only thing we would change about our wedding at the Oyster Point would be to make it longer!!! We were pretty much set on the Oyster Point as soon as we saw it last year: I wanted a wedding at a hotel and my husband wanted a wedding with a view! The Oyster Point could not have been more perfect! Luckily, we had a beautiful August day for our wedding, which only enhanced the view and use of the balconies! Working with Bill Murray was wonderful, he is patient and always gets back to you quickly with any little question. He worked with us to make sure our wedding had everything we wanted! Christian was our Maitre D and in line with what we heard, he was fantastic: the attention to detail and smoothness of the wedding day was apparent to all in attendance! I was completely relaxed on my wedding day, since I was SO confident these two had everything under control! We had our ceremony on site and the turn over to the ballroom reception seemed to be perfect! The food was delicious from cocktail hour until the cake from Tinton Falls pastry chef! Everyone is still raving about the meal! Post-ceremony some of the bridal party went up to the suite and they even had food up there for us to enjoy so we would not miss out. Our server brought my husband and I one of each meal to our sweetheart table, from which we both took one bite! When we got up to the suite at the end of the night, our three meals were there along with cake and champagne! The following morning we had a brunch back in the ballroom and the room still looked gorgeous with our centerpieces reused on the tables.No detail was overlooked! I am so happy we chose the Oyster Point for our wedding- it turned out to be everything I dreamed for and more! Thank you Bill, Christian and everyone at the Oyster Point!
Everything about our wedding at the Oyster Point was completely perfect, from the time we booked with Allison in October up through our wedding day and night. From our very first meeting with Allison we got such a great feeling from her and loved all the Oyster Point had to offer. Throughout the entire process Allison immediately answered all my questions and emails. She was extremely helpful and professional!
Our wedding day was amazing. Cristian and the entire staff made sure the we were taken care of from start to finish and the same treatment was given to our families. The room and view were gorgeous, the food was amazing and the service was great. We have received countless compliments on all parts of our wedding.
Thanks so much to everyone at the Oyster Point. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!
I can't say enough good things about the Oyster Point. Everything was perfect. I had planned this wedding from Las Vegas. Our family lives in NJ so it was a destination for us. I was a little worried being so far away but they put my mind at ease. I worked with Bill Murray & I have nothing but praise for him. He is extremely professional & accomodating.
The Maitre'D, Christian, was really a class act. He took care of everything for us.
The venue itself is the perfect place for a day wedding. The setting is stunning. The views of the water are breathtaking.
The food was amazing. We are still getting compliments about it almost a week later.
We had an after-party in our suite and they set up all the food and drinks for us. We walked into our room and it was all ready to go!! Just incredible.
I could not have picked a better place or asked for better service.
Thank you Oyster Point!!!
I knew I wanted the have my reception at the Oyster Point the second I got engaged. It had it all- gorgeous reception room, huge beautiful balconies, views of the water and the boats, and hotel rooms right upstairs. I worked with Allison Mercer who is just beyond wonderful. I don't have enough good things to say about her! She was organized, responsive, and so helpful with everything. She also remembered any little details I mentioned in passing that I wanted for wedding day without me having to remind or even send over in writing. Anytime I had a question she would get back to me almost immediately. Working with her helped make my planning process a million times easier. The wedding day was beyond perfect. Everything was set up perfectly and the room looked stunning. Christian was out Maitre D and he was wonderful as well! He made sure we were taken care of at all times. The Oyster Point exceeded all of my expectations and I could not be happier with the decision we made to book there. My guests are still raving about how gorgeous the venue was and the food! I've received so many messages about how it's the best food people have ever had at a wedding before. What a perfect day! Thank you Oyster Point, Allison, and Christian for everything.
My experience with The Oyster Point Hotel was absolutely perfect. Allison was my sales rep and I was so calm and responsive, my reception was the least stressful part of my wedding. Any questions I had were quickly answered. The level of professionalism by the entire staff was amazing. Cristian is a class act, he quietly observes everything and anticipates your needs on your big day. From schedules to mishaps he does it all...even when a bride spills chocolate mousse on her dress and is panicked- he is right there to shout it out. I ate cocktail hour foods with my wedding party in a private bridal area they had prepared for us before greeting our guests. They made sure I had a drink in my hand at all times. I know many brides who have said they never ate or drank anything at their wedding. Cristian made sure to politely pull us aside when new courses were at our table so we enjoyed every part of our menu. Every one of our guests said how wonderful the food was and they were all impressed with the hotel. The back deck was beautiful for Memorial Day weekend. Fireworks went off after dinner over the river and made my day perfect. Go with Oyster Point, you won't be disappointed.
Oyster Point was fantastic. We had an amazing wedding. Bill and Allison were fabulous. They were very attentive and were always there to answer questions.
The reason I did not give a 5 was because our maître' d was changed 2 days before our wedding. She was just alright. Things I had told her in the pre-wedding day meeting she did not remember and told the vendors the wrong things. She was in the way during the reception. What annoyed me the most was I had to tell her to change the music and shut the doors before I walked down the aisle.
Even with those minor issues the day was still absolutely perfect. I had about 180 people/15 tables and it was just the right amount. Plenty of room to dance and walk around! I would absolutely recommend Oyster Point for your wedding. Just request a different maître' d!
Christian and Bill Murray (don't you love that?) were amazing. We felt like royalty the whole time, and throughout the year and a half of planning I felt like I was the most important bride in the world. They accommodated requests such as a Rabbit shaped napkin fold and were just so much fun to interact with. My guests who stayed at this hotel all raved about the accommodations. Once the ballroom was filled (about 120 guests) it felt very cozy, not terribly huge or open. It was a good space for the group of people we had. I love Red Bank as you can get everything you need for your wedding right there, which makes planning it at Oyster Point less stressful. The cake options are great. After the wedding was over we were so used to being treated like royalty it was quite an adjustment! And the bridal suite was sweeeeet! You want to be sure to check this place out, probably at a wedding walk. We also had brunch the next day and our table decorations were brought down which we didn't even think of ourselves. Brunch had amazing service and each guest and guest of honor was treated impeccably from the moment of arrival to the exit.
The Oyster Point Hotel was the PERFECT place for our 120 person wedding. The venue is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food/drinks were amazing.
We worked with Billy Murray from the very beginning and he is awesome! He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and very responsive to any and all questions we had.
Christian was our maître de and Anne was our server the day of the wedding. They did so much more though! They set up the entire ball room and cocktail room for us because we made our own centerpieces. They far exceeded our expectations in making our “vision” come to life.
The food was great! The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and people were so impressed that it actually came out the temperature they ordered it! The Peking duck station at the cocktail hour was a huge hit. People are still talking about the food that day.
Lastly, the venue is so beautiful and it was great to use the balcony at the cocktail hour. We had the North Suite, which is included in the package and is used as the bridal suite. It was perfect to hang out in before the cocktail hour and they brought up all of the apps and the signature drinks.
I can’t think of one negative thing to say about the Oyster Point, it was the venue and the staff there that really made our wedding day perfect.
We chose The Oyster Point Hotel because of its beauty and uniqueness. We wanted a one-stop accommodation for wedding venue and hotel rooms for our guests as it was a NYE wedding. The modern look of the boutique hotel looked amazing in our photos. The wait staff were very professional and accommodating. Chrisitian, our maitre'd, was amazing. He made the night's activities flow seamlessly. The food was over the top and delicious from the cocktail hour to the viennese table. The wedding cake was also part of the package and was made by Carlos Bakery. If was absolutely beautiful. We had not one complaint from any our guests (even the picky eaters!) The top shelf open bar had a great variety and the bartenders were very efficient. The brunch the next morning was also coordinated by Christian and the set-up of the room was beautiful and had amazing views of the river. My only complaint was with the hotel staff. Having booked a large wedding, we needed to reserve all of the rooms in the hotel. We booked all 56 rooms and spilled over into their sister hotel at the Molly Pitcher Inn. Linda, the women in charge of the bookings was very difficult to deal with and made herself unavailable for all of meetings. She was not very prompt in returning phone calls either. If you have the time and patience to deal with the bookings manager, the rooms and suites are beautiful and are worth it in the end.
everyone was so professional and extremely helpful , I would work with Alison and Christian , both amazingly helpful and responsive .
I was a little nervous as my big day was quickly approaching. But I shouldn't have worried one bit. Cristian and Allison were there for me every step of the way! Everything was PERFECT! Even the wait staff, they were so on top of things, I was completely blown away. The truly made my wedding run seamlessly and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the Oyster Point Hotel!
The Oyster Point Hotel was a fabulous venue for my wedding day! The hotel staff was very accommodating to our needs to make sure our day was special. Alison was a fantastic wedding planner and was very responsive to our questions and worked diligently to accommodate our requests. Christian was out maitre-d, and he likewise worked tirelessly throughout the evening to make sure everything moved along smoothly.
